a quick context. in 2008 the middle part of the year the city and county and police department decided to shift gears toward a new approach of governance in terms of deployment of police officers using what has commonly been referred to as a zone strategy. basically saturating the areas and deploying police officers based upon statistical analysis of crime. it was not as sophisticated as it is today. but the effort has paid dividends. as a consequence we have seen over the course not just six months but candidly over the course of 20 to 24 months a substantial decrease in crime in almost every category in this city. one year doesn't necessarily make a trend but two years begins to associate itself with a trend. so, without getting ahead of ourselves, without overpromising, i don't want to leave you though with a sense that this news is new news or good news that may not continue in terms of its pace and its trend line. i want to acknowledge as well that the zone strategy was just recently recognized by the department of justice as one of the best practices in the united states. we rece

and tunnel 2, provide most of the city's water supply. they run hundreds of feet below manhattan, far deeper than the subways. built at the beginning of the 20th century, they are concrete-lined and bored through solid rock. they could last centuries. but the mechanical equipment within them will not. engineers in the 1950s discovered rust on the tunnel's valves. there were concerns that if they closed the valves for tunnel inspections, they may never open again, leaving new york city without water. so they chose to keep them open. as a result, there has not been significant inspection, maintenance, or repair of the tunnels in decades. no one knows their current condition. hurwitz: currently, city tunnel 1 and city tunnel number 2 would be feeding each half of the city. so you'd lose half the city if you didn't have a replacement. narrator: without half of its water supply, the city would shut down. for nearly 40 years, new york has been in the process of constructing a solution. man: this project is water tunnel number 3. we started on this project in 1969. i'm a sandhog. i've been a sandho

credits not just for the space but our overall relationship with city college. they also use -- use significant number of our fields -- and not just this facility but other facilities as well. i think it is an important time to point out that we have a very strong relationship with city college. it transcends this particular department and this particular class. during the course of the last year that i have been on the job, i have actually had conversations with -- with trustee chair milton marks who specifically requested that when this issue was ripe six months ago that we delay six months because the class had already been put in the program guide. i have had conversations with -- with the chancellor, with chancellor griffen, we have had a few conversations with peter goldstein about this. this was a letter that again repredated my tenure as g.m. in june asking for a reconciliation with city college on various deeds for fields and facilities. there has been a year's worth of e-mail back and forth with city college and also -- also involving some of the -- of the group that is ar

form. on 7.1k, which provides as a condition for the city's closing of this deal, it says, "city's compliance with all applicable laws." , and that should be "museum's compliance with all applicable laws." that same language is replicated in section 7.3h. it says the same thing. in other words, in 7.1k, it should be "museum's" and that will be corrected. that would apply to first source hiring, which is applicable. that is within the definition of applicable laws. supervisor chiu: on this question of whether we need to amend the agreement to specifically first course -- first source hiring, you think that is something we need to do? >> i believe it would be the first was hiring is applicable, which i believe it is, we have already looked at that, that that would be redundant and unnecessary, but we could do that as well as long as we're going to make this one change. we could add those words to the specific provisions that are addressed if it is deemed advisable by the partisan the board. supervisor chiu: 90. i guess i would look to the parties to say is that something that would

police department involvement presented to the city and county of san francisco just recently. so, our efforts are not only paying dividends in being recognized locally by the community, most importantly, and by leaders throughout the city and the region and state, but now across the country. now, quickly to the stats, the chief will walk you through ain specific detail. i will say just the following. last year we saw a 54% decline in homicides in the city among the lowest rates we had in over half a century. in fact, the stats get very questionable in those 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. but they are down to the lowest level since the early 1960's. we had crime, violent crime, part one crime in the city, drop 10%, double digits, last year. the statistics that the chief will give you today are based upon those historic drops last year. i say that to make this point. they are even more significant working with your district captains who are also here. analyzing problems in your kennedy and determining the priority for police enforcement. this is a cornerstone of the community policing model

and demographic group within the city and around the country. the data that the previous report shows that 20% of the city put the population as people over 65 years old, but i think within 20 years, the population will increase, i think, 60%. the senior population will increase by about 60%. that is why it is critical to understand the housing needs and to develop stronger policies and to implement other task force recommendations of different offices of the mayor and task forces from previous years so that we become an aging friendly city in the future. but 255 hours to do this work by september, and this information should be very valuable for the task force an alliance of individuals that are working for stronger the gene-friendly city legislation for the future, so i urge support by my colleagues. -- the aging-friendly city legislation. supervisor chu: in our package, i see the motion on the legislation, but i do not have with me what the scope of the work might be. do you happen to have a copy of that anywhere? >> we did prepare a report for today's meeting. hopefully, you received that

that would be agreeable? -- thank you. >> from the cities and, it is totally agreeable. the jet from the city's end -- from the city's and. >> that is absolutely agreeable. we get at a reference to the first source hiring chapter of the administrative code -- we could add a reference to the first source hiring chapter. supervisor chiu: i'm not sure that requires a formal motion because the agreement is not in front of us, but as long as there is a commitment by the parties to do this, i'm comfortable with leaving it as it is and allow the parties to do that. >> that is right, and the committee does not have the jurisdiction to make an amendment to the contract. you have to have the parties agree, and they will submit new a new version. supervisor chiu: great. supervisor maxwell: without objection -- again, supervisor. >> thank you. i'm here for items 5 and 6, but i would like to thank supervisor maxwell for letting me make a comment. as a supervisor who represents district two and the presidio, we have had a number of committee hearings right here in land use on the proposed mus
